:3/16 :Today I went out just to see what I could find. It was about 65 degrees and some ponds still had snow and ice from 28 inches of snow three weeks ago! I didn't expect much but I had to get out! Much to my joy I found:1 EASTERN GARTER : 1 BLACK RACER : 1 SPOTTED TURTLE : 1 SNAPPER :AND I SEEN 5 EASTERN RED BELLIES AND 1 PAINTED TURTLE.I took alot of pics but I STILL dont have a digital camera . It was a good days herping after a long winter. In a few weeks I am going to see what I can find in N.C. I will post what I find.
